Color Dipped Wooden Utensils + Free Printable Gift Tag
It’s officially Spring, which is my absolute favorite season!! I love all things involving tulips, longer days, and evening walks. I also even enjoy some good ol’ Spring cleaning (and I hate cleaning on a normal basis). Well … Spring also brings with it Mother’s Day!
One of the best traits I got from my Mom is the love of all things handmade! Today I’m here with a pretty and practical gift idea for your mom – Color Dipped Wooden Utensils. It’s super quick and easy!
DIY Dipped Wooden Utensils
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Set of three wooden or bamboo kitchen utensils (I found mine at Target … and forgot to take a picture of the ‘before’ … sorry!).
- Craft paint (I actually used some minty Valspar paint)
- Navy and white polka dot fabric tape. I found mine at JoAnn. Any fun washi tape would work, though! Think of your Mom’s kitchen …
- Polycrylic ultra clear sealer
- Painter’s tape
- Foam paintbrush
- Printable gift tags (see below on how to download).
And here’s how to quickly make these:
Tape off part of the top of the handle of each utensil and paint with your craft paint.
Once dry, grab your washi or fabric tape:
And a tape band around the edge of your painted section:
Now, in order to both seal the tape (so it doesn’t pull off) and waterproof it (so you can wash these utensils), you’ll want to apply a couple of coats of sealer. I used Polycrylic from Minwax:
Apply the sealer over the top and over all edges of the tape plus the entire painted section. This is essentially waterproofing your work!
And finally … add a cute (and meaningful) Gift Tag:

A perfect handmade gift for your mom this year! Especially a mom that loves to cook and bake!
